SOURCE: 2001 Pontiac Grand Am SE rear tires and struts scraping

struts frozen or not will not control how close the tires are to the strut. The tire and lower portion of the strut move of one. The compresson/rebound point is about the strut base

SOURCE: need to replace rear struts

It depends on who does it. If you are doing it by yourself, I would allow at least a couple of hours on each side, although it should take no more than one per side. If you have air tools and a lift, it should take between an hour or two from start to finish, since removing wheels, bolts etc would be fast. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Breaks on a 2006 Grand Prix

Rear disc brakes have to also apply the parking brakes.
To do that, they must not retract too far.
That is accomplished with a one way ratched down the center of the piston, on the back side.
So most rear pistons have to be rotated CW in order to retract down this spiral ratchet.
Not sure exactly how Pontiac works, but there is probably a large slot in the piston to allow for this.

SOURCE: SHEET METAL IS RUSTED BY REAR STRUT TOWER 2000 GRAND PRIX

Not that I know of the only thing I know of is to take it to either a body shop or a welder and have a plate welded into place. How old is the escort, it may not be worth the cost. How is the rest of the car rust wise?

SOURCE: change a rear strut on a 95 grand prix

If it is just a matter of removing the old unit complete and installing a complete unit then it is that easy. If you are removing the unit to replace the shock, then you will need a spring compressor. Or, if you take off the unit and take it to your local auto parts, which has a service dept. they will replace the shock for a small fee.

Just wanna know if an 06 grand prix has rear tie rods


The Gran Prix should come with one of 2 systems and they would be a strut set up or a coil spring and shock set.On these set ups they dont have tie rod ends These are usually held in place by an adjustment arm and a trailing arm.These 2 arms hold the rear axle in its stationary position.I hope that gives you an idea as to the setup of most of your newer rear axles.

When braking in our 1993 pontiact grand am there


Check to see if the rear strut is worn out. These cars are known for the strut to get dirt and water inside (normally there's a protective boot but they deteriorate in time) and it literally grinds the strut to where it gets very loose and wobbly. Also, the top mount rusts away causing the strut to bang around. Hope this helps!
